  1 Do not be incensed because of evildoers; Do not be envious of wrongdoers.

  2 For they soon wither like grass And fade away like green herbage.

  3 Trust in Jehovah, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.

  4 Delight yourself in Jehovah, And He will give you the requests of your heart.

  5 Commit your way to Jehovah, And trust in Him; and He will act.

  6 And He will cause your righteousness to go forth like light, And your justness like noonday.

  7 Be still before Jehovah, and wait for Him; Do not be incensed because of him who enjoys prosperity on his way, Because of the man who performs his evil schemes.

  8 Cease from anger and forsake wrath; Do not be incensed; it leads only to evil.

  9 For the evildoers will be cut off; But those who wait on Jehovah, They will inherit the land.

10 And in a little while longer there will be no wicked man; Indeed, you will look diligently for his place, and he will not be there.

11 But the lowly will inherit the land And delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

12 The wicked man makes evil schemes against the righteous man And gnashes his teeth at him.

13 The Lord will laugh at him, For He sees that his day will come.

14 The wicked have drawn out the sword And bent their bow, To cast the poor and the needy down, To slaughter those who are upright in their way.

15 Their sword will enter their own heart, And their bows will be broken.

16 Better is the little that the righteous man has Than the abundance of many wicked.

17 For the arms of the wicked will be broken, But Jehovah upholds the righteous.

18 Jehovah knows the days of the perfect, And their inheritance will be forever.

19 They will not be put to shame in a time of evil, And in the days of famine they will be satisfied.

20 But the wicked will perish, And the enemies of Jehovah will be like the glory of the pastures: They are consumed; in smoke they are consumed.

21 The wicked borrow but do not repay, But the righteous is gracious and gives.

22 For those blessed by Him will inherit the land, But those cursed by Him will be cut off.

23 A man's steps are established by Jehovah, And He delights in his way.

24 If he falls, he is not utterly cast down; For Jehovah upholds him by the hand.

25 I was once a young man; now I am old. Yet I have not seen the righteous man forsaken, Nor his seed seeking bread.

26 He is always gracious and lends, And his seed becomes a blessing.

27 Turn away from evil and do good, And abide forever.

28 For Jehovah loves justice And does not abandon His faithful ones; They are kept forever; But the seed of the wicked is cut off.

29 The righteous will inherit the land, And they will abide in it forever.

30 The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, And his tongue speaks justice.

31 The law of his God is in his heart; His steps do not slip.

32 The wicked man watches for the righteous man And seeks to slay him.

33 Jehovah does not leave him in his hand, Nor let him be condemned when he is judged.

34 Wait for Jehovah, And keep His way; And He will exalt you to inherit the land; When the wicked are cut off, you will see it.

35 I have seen the wicked man terrorizing, And spreading himself like a luxuriant native tree.

36 Then someone passes by, and behold, he is not there; I search for him, and he is not found.

37 Observe the perfect man, and watch the upright man; For there is a future for the man of peace.

38 But the transgressors will be altogether destroyed; The future of the wicked will be cut off.

39 And the salvation of the righteous is from Jehovah; He is their stronghold in a time of distress.

40 And Jehovah helps them and rescues them; He rescues them from the wicked, And saves them, for they take refuge in Him.
